I figured I should make this because there seems to be alot of misconceptions and mystery around whether or not accounts can be deleted, so I’m going to answer some questions I have seen.
Can accounts be deleted?
The answer to this is yes, they can provided they don’t have posts which are over 60 days old and have less than 5000 posts. Your account can be more than 60 days old and be deleted provided it has no posts over 60 days old.
What is the alternative?
Well, you can go through your account and delete every post you ever made yourself or you can ask to be anonymised which is far less time consuming. Anonymisation changes your username to randomly generated numbers and letters and you can also request to suspend the account.
Who do I talk to about this?
You can talk to any of the @moderators or @Heads that you feel comfortable with, all mods have the power to delete accounts. If it’s a case of you forgetting your password but no longer wanting an account you can email firstname.lastname@example.org and it will be dealt with.
@Announcements I hope this helps you all, if you have any questions then PM me or ask here.
